I am an entrepreneur, graduate student, and grateful daughter of the Most High! I love my career as a freelance writer and aspiring author, but my day-to-day is the same as anyone else’s. I pray when I drive to campus in the morning, I listen to worship music on Spotify, and I do my Bible study before I turn on the evening news…
…I am a strong Christian woman, and I’m living out my faith in the real world. Sometimes it’s easy and sometimes it’s hard, but it’s always been worth it.
Please follow my journey as I pursue the passion that God has placed in my heart: to honor Him in the everyday. Feel free to leave thoughtful comments and subscribe; they are all welcome and appreciated!

Why did you start blogging?
I always dreamed of becoming a writer, but I started out on a different path. I graduated with my undergraduate degree in accounting and I worked in financial sales for five years, but God never extinguished the fire in my heart. I started working on a book in 2014, and when I finished I wanted to keep going. I launched She Talks About Jesus by J Dolores Perry in 2015 and I’ve been writing ever since. I currently work as a freelance writer for businesses and nonprofits around the world.
Where do you live?
I’m a California girl, but I’ve spent the past few years in rural Missouri.
What is your favorite Bible story?
There are so many stories that inspire me, but my favorite is the book of Ruth. I have traveled from state to state and country to country to follow the path that God has set before me, and I can totally relate to Ruth’s willingness to leave her family, friends, and culture behind to join God’s people.
What is your favorite Bible verse?
My favorite verse is 2 Timothy 2:11-13: “This saying is trustworthy: ‘For if we died with him, we will also live with him. If we endure, we will also reign with him. If we deny him, he also will deny us. If we are faithless, he remains faithful. He can’t deny himself.'”
